Meet David, a Park High School senior who enjoys football, wrestling, and MMA fighting. His plan for the future is to see where football takes him in college and he has some dreams about where that might be. For now, he also plans to focus on medical engineering wherever he goes. In his free time from sports, he works at Home Goods and beyond that, shared that he does not have a lot of other free time.
Have an awesome senior year, David! Thanks for the privilege to take your senior portraits and loved the splash pad ending!
(This family is one awesome family because the couple has put their heart for others into action by adopting and fostering for as long as I have known them. They have opened their doors to countless kids needing a loving and safe place to grow up and now not only have kids but also some fun-loving grandkids in the mix! It was so much fun to catch up with them and capture their relationships as a family!
It is my joy and honor to share this fun family with you again! I've been taking their portraits for a number of years now. It is always a joy to watch the kids play and have a special relationship from year-to-year and this year they shared another fun relationship with me by bringing along their puppy to their mini session at Hastings' Lock and Dam 2.
Sometimes, the best way to capture the stage of life in a child's life is to allow them to just play and enjoy life. After a few attempts at getting these three to sit still, mom and dad wisely agreed that maybe we should just let them play on the shore of the Mississippi River in Hastings near the Lock & Dam Two. I find kids come alive in play, so capturing their curiosity and wonder for life in this stage of life sometimes documents them better than any other way. It's not just about capturing the moment this way, but creating a special moment as well.
Meet the Hanson family -- more specifically mom & dad plus they're two youngest kids, who aren't so little anymore. Leah here graduated last year and Brandon is entering into his senior year this next year at Park High School. We met up on a beautiful summer night as the sun was setting and laughed a lot as we walked along the path at Highlands Park in Cottage Grove.
